Left - Smoke Creek Bridge on Hwy 60 in Algonquin Park. This concrete replacement structure was built in 2000, after the original timber bridge burnt down in August 1999. The fire started when a transport truck lost control and overturned on the Smoke Creek Bridge, spilling fuel onto the bridge deck. The fuel subsequently ignited and set fire to the creosoted timber substructure of the bridge, quickly engulfing the entire structure in flames. The old bridge was so badly damaged by the fire, that it had to be replaced. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Close-up of the date stamp (2000) and structure identification number on the new Smoke Creek Bridge. Following the fire, the Ministry of Transportation installed a Bailey Bridge at this location in order to restore access to Algonquin Provincial Park while a replacement bridge could be designed and constructed. Until the Bailey Bridge was installed, traffic faced a lengthy detour via Bancroft and Whitney in order to reach the main campground areas of Algonquin Park. See an Enlarged Photo here.
